Title: Postopek in naprava za neinvazivno vodenje notranjih temperaturnih spremenljivk v realnem času med terapijo z ohlajanjem ali ogrevanjem (SI), (Method and device for non-invasive real-time control of inner body temperature variables during therapeutic cooling or heating)
Description: A method and device for non-invasive real-time control of inner body temperature variables during therapeutic cooling or heating using computer simulations, machine learning and control techniques. The invention refers to a method and device that enable control of inner body temperatures according to different therapeutic protocols. The technical problem that the invention solves is the control of inner body temperatures (hidden temperatures) that are difficult or impossible to be measured. In that context, a predictive model is used to estimate (predict) the values of the controlled inner temperature variables based on smaller number of other variables whose measurement is more feasible, i.e. temperatures on the body surface. However, simulations are usually resource and time consuming. The predictive model is constructed using advanced methods for data analytics to capture the correlation between the hidden variable and the measurable ones in data resulting from preliminary computer simulation of the system for different input simulation parameters.
